Sport is fundamental to life at Wellesley, and every pupil participates in games several times each week. Our pupils are encouraged to develop their sporting skills across a wide range of sports, supported by our passionate and qualified coaches, and many develop a love of sport that lasts a lifetime.
In addition to our beautifully prepared playing fields, tennis and netball courts, a sports hall and dance studio, we are fortunate to benefit from two squash courts, an indoor swimming pool, putting green and rifle shooting range. We also have close links with Royal St George’s Golf Club, and our pupils are coached by the Club’s professional and get the opportunity to play golf on this world renowned links course.
There is a strong cricketing heritage at Wellesley, and both boys and girls play. In 2018, Wellesley was selected as one of The Cricketer Magazine’s top 50 cricketing schools, and there are a number of Old Welleslians who have gone on to become professional cricketers playing at both a national and county level.
Wellesley’s sporting credentials are strong, and many pupils win sports scholarships to leading senior schools, and there are a number of Old Welleslian Olympic medallists and other elite performers in their chosen sport.
